Eighteen Wheels At Midnight (Larry W. Jones 11/24/2006) (song#4178)

The town Iím from is so doggone little
Only had one caution light in the middle
At night Iíd go down and whittle the time away
Iíd listen to the horn from an eighteen wheeler
That old highway called and I could feel Ďer
Iíd dream of eighteen wheels at midnight
Rolling on that road lookiní for the light of day

I grew up like a lonesome pup
Flew around in my pickup truck
Tryiní to escape from that little town of mine
Canít say it didnít treat me right
But I dreamed of eighteen wheels at midnight
Every time I heard a big Ďol diesel whine

I put my dreams on that white dotted line
And I plotted how to escape that little town
But somehow my dreams all let me down
Cause Iím still here just wasting time

Why I stayed, well itís hard to say
Life in a little town ainít too harried
Things came along, got in the way
Like kids Ďn mortgage, beiní married
I still fly around in my pickup truck
Payiní bills when the moneyís tight
Well, I guess I just ran out of luck
Dreaminí of eighteen wheels at midnight
